Two British watchmaking institutions have joined forces on the Bremont S500 Bamford Special Edition.

The 250-piece limited edition is Bamford Watch Department’s take on Bremont’s 43mm Supermarine S500 diver, combining an all-black DLC coated stainless steel case with a California dial, a first for both brands, featuring a mix of Arabic and Roman numerals as well as baton indices.

The sandwich dial features a solid layer of “California Blue” Super-LumiNova material beneath the main dial, only visible through apertures representing the hour markers, while newly designed hands indicate the time.

“I love the California dial and the integration of two styles,” says George Bamford. “I feel it represents the blend of two British brands working together. Also using what feels like a military blue, it emulates the crossover and bringing together of Bamford Watch Department and Bremont.”

The watch is topped off with a bas relief diving bezel in black ceramic, with a mix of matte and polished finishes.

“Projects such as this provide so much design inspiration,” says Bremont Co-Founder Nick English. “It’s been an incredibly natural process with George sharing so many of the same interests, from aviation to automobiles and vintage military timepieces.”

Water resistant to 500m and secured on a black sailcloth strap with matching California Blue stitching, the Bremont S500 Bamford Special Edition is available now via both Bremont and Bamford, priced £3,995 GBP (approximately $5,000 USD).
